What's your super power aka the thing that you are super-duper-good-at? One of the perks of being married and having a foreign partner is that it's very easy to develop a great eye for reading body language. Back in the day whenever I was around Balazs' family or his Hungarian friends that didn't really speak English, I learned to feed off their gestures, lip movements, gesticulations and all the little quirks that you pay attention to when you don't completely understand the other person. I remember catching myself repeating new words I learned in Hungarian by recreating the hand movement and facial expression of the person I heard it from. It's so bizarre but so helpful to me! I bet that those of you married to a foreigner can relate to this, can't you? So, in the past few years I've noticed that I rely on those body language instincts much more than I used to. At times Balazs is even spooked out by how accurately I can make an observation and respond to someone the right way even if that person didn't really say much. Ever since I'm with Balazs (which is over 11 years now - yowza) I became fascinated with body language and maybe that is why I love people-watching so much. Once a friend who shares my super power said that even if we don't say something, our body says it for us:) I love that!
Now your turn. What's your super power? Do you have a sixth sense? Are you great with numbers? A fantastic problem solver or maybe you are a wonderful friend? Balazs' super power is his friendliness. He is the easiest person I've ever known to make friends. People just love talking to him. xo
P.S: And your anti-stress hero:)
